Courses Do Not Show up in D2L

Depending on where a student is in D2L courses may not show up for them. The following are the three most common reasons for "missing" courses.

1) Accidentally collapsing a section under "My Courses."
To re-open a section, click the chevron (carrot, greater-than symbol, arrow, etc.) icon on the right-hand side of the grey bar containing the department or semester name.

2) Looking for the course under "Select a course..." while having more courses than are listed.
Click "Load More Courses" or view your complete list of courses under "My Courses."
3) You are not yet enrolled in the D2L course. SIS and D2L integrate during an overnight process.
Courses do not show up in D2L immediately after registering in SIS. If you feel you are need a copy of the syllabus or readings after late enrollment, contact your instructor. See the flowchart below for more information.
4) The course has not started yet.
Courses do not appear before their start date unless requested by the instructor. In some cases, two courses that start on the same day can still have different start dates in D2L. This is typically because the instructor of the one that does show up has requested for it to do so; otherwise courses do not show up until the day the class starts in SIS. See the flowchart below for more information.
5) The course does not exits on D2L or is cross listed.
Not all instructors use D2L, check with your instructor to ensure that you should be logging on to complete work. Some courses are cross listed (Humanistic Studies and History for example); if you are looking for HUM STUD 303 make sure it is not instead listed as HIST 303 on D2L.
